Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Face Sentence of 20 Years in Prison for College Admissions Scam

Updated On 04 Apr, 2019 Published On

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, both, appeared in front of a federal judge at a Boston courthouse on Wednesday, April 3, for their hearing over their involvement in the college admissions scam.

The judge told all defendants that they will be facing a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine and three years probation.

All 13 defendants, including the Desperate Housewives alum and the Fuller House star, were charged with conspiracy to commit honest services fraud and mail fraud on Wednesday, April 3.

Huffman and Loughlin were arrested on March 12 and March 13 respectively after being accused of paying bribes to help their daughters get into prestigious Universities.

According to the court documents, Huffman and Loughlin allegedly paid $15,000 and $500,000, respectively, in exchange for having their kids designated as recruits to the USC crew team.

Huffman and Loughlin are among the dozens of people who participated in the scandal for the sake of their kids.

As the backlash of the scandal, last month, an upset mom, Jennifer Kay Toy, filed a $500 billion lawsuit against many parents for taking her son Joshua's college spot.

The scandal has been named as Operation Varsity Blues.
